Welcome to Sycamore!

Our teachers are Mrs Peopall and Mrs Whitaker, and we also work with Mrs Harris and Mrs Brown

In Sycamore, the children really show they're now the oldest in the school, as they demonstrate fantastic attitudes and learning behaviours. We encourage collaboration, independent learning, and a willingness to try and fail! 

As a member of Sycamore, there are many roles and opportunities offered to the children such as House Captains, School Councillors, members of the Green Team and planning and delivering Junior Worship to KS2. This year we have been delighted that so many children have put themselves forward for these roles - it takes real confidence to write a speech, plan a worship and talk articulately in front of a large group of people. Well done!

In Autumn term, our English lessons are based on Shackleton’s Journey and his journey to Antarctica. He was an inspirational explorer and we have been inspired by his resilience, bravery and team spirit. Each of us have become a crew member of the Endurance, and have written letters, both formal and informal, and diary entries in character.

During PSHE, we have worked in teams to build the strongest bridge in ten minutes; it was incredible how much weight some of them held! We have discussed how it is important to try and work out a resolution when there is a conflict and we have played games to help us understand this.

We have worked hard as geographers finding out about the purpose of longitude and latitude and we have compared geographical features of Antarctica with the UK. We were surprised to discover that Antarctica have almost 24 hours of daylight and darkness in some months and discussed what this may be like.

In science, we have been busy learning about how to sort organisms using classification keys and the Linnaeus system of classification. We have used scientific vocabulary when thinking about questions to use.
